It’s time for some bipartisanship
Which means some give and take will have to come about. After all, if democracy is to play its part, bipartisanship has to play a role.
With no overwhelming victory, it is obvious that there is a split in America. That split mainly is between the Democrats who favor government control in many areas that affect the privacy of our lives and the Republicans who prefer private enterprise with necessary government control mainly when necessary to keep the safety and freedom of the country in order.
From there, we can judge if the parties are playing their parts in this bipartisan effort. In other words, is each party giving in sufficiently to satisfy some of the opposition’s preferences that differ with theirs?
We must remember this is not a dictatorship. Democrats who favor their party’s doctrine cannot turn their backs on Republican requests that would favor their own doctrine. And vice versa.
So President Barack Obama and Republican leaders, let’s get together and make this country do its best in providing economic benefits and freedom for our country. But, at the same time, we can keep open minds that there may be other ways to do it.
That is the way of democracy and it is the way to go to provide the best for our citizens. Our differences will still exist but our needs can only be met by spreading the decision-making process among all of those who are governed.
